    Took the dogs to the groomer to get the lab and akita shaved and found a possible maitake in the lady's yard?

    Anyone found any this early before?

    They came early last year. Global warming I presume.

    Looks like it. Not a good picture though. A picture of it whole would be good, where was it growing? In the ground near a tree?

    Out in a yard in grass. 30 feet from a tree. Maybe shallow roots?

    Old buried stump probably.

    From what I can tell, it was actually a dark/black staining polypore. Decent flavor but VERY fiberous/chewy.
